Data protectionWe attach importance to protection of your privacy and, in particular, to data protection. We take security of your data on the Internet seriously. We therefore protect your information by modern security systems, comply with the data protection provisions and only make use of your data for internal purposes. All systems in which your data are stored are password-protected and only accessible to a defined group of persons at swisstopo. These persons are governed by stringent security criteria which prohibit disclosure to third parties. To justify your confidence in us, we will use your data only for the purposes for which they were entrusted to us. We will therefore on no account sell or hire out such data to third parties for advertising or other purposes. You may of course amend your customer data at the time of your choosing. We advise you to choose your email address as your username because in all likelihood no other customer would choose the same address and duplication is therefore impossible.
